Intuitively, I really think that there must be a way to remove, overall, a light tint of yellow with some chemistry unknown to me. If so, it would be gratifying to bring back those true, unadulterated whites.
    With BW paper, usually the best approach is to add some antifoggant or restrainer to developer. In fact, they normally exist there, usually as bromide, some formulas even have some benzotriazole, so you just increase the antifoggant level to lower fog. Speed goes down simultaneously.

    In fact, the same principle should work with color products as well! You can try adding bromide to developer. However, I'm not so sure if it will work very well... Worth trying anyway.

    And, I'd bet there are more efficient antifoggants for color papers than just bromide.

    thanks for all the replay

    cheers
    16x20 is being discontinued? That would be downright weird - it's a much more popular size than 20x24.

    I gues they think that people will by 20x24 and cut it down or something, but its stated on several homepages, for example Silverprint: http://www.silverprint.co.uk/Product....asp?PrGrp=131

    "FUJICOLOUR CRYSTAL ARCHIVE SFA 4MP NEG PAPER
    BACK IN STOCK (12/4/10) ON AN ONGOING BASIS - HOWEVER PLEASE NOTE THAT 10x12" & 16x20" ARE LIMITED STOCK AND WILL NOT CONTINUE (unless sanity prevails)"

    cheers
